It was the last day of February, I was doing my best to blast this blog post out before the month ends; I spoke of consistency and planning last month but it would seem like I forgot all about my big plans to plan. The good news is: I have been living the plan. I think there is a WHOLE lot more to writing down our plans that make them a bit more tangible.

So, how were the past couple of months? Well, to begin with, I admit, I have completely not journaled at all. I am disappointed with myself about that because the journaling is a huge part of my goals and plans for the success of the rest of the year. (Speaking of journaling… it’s interesting that tonight at church someone asked me if I had been and we both agreed how important it is…I take that as a sign I need to be more intentional about it) I also will not beat myself up about it. I think sometimes I forget that I am a wife, mom and active member of my community in different ways and all that really does take grace-filled patience. So, with the arrival of May, I have a whole entire month to try again and get it done. Chee huuu! So far I have been consistent for 2 days and today will make 3!

To make excuses, because I do that too, I recently took a trip to visit a friend and that pretty much consumed my daily existence for a minute. I will share all about that trip on my personal blog at I am excited to share that I have been moving more towards a plant-based diet and boy oh boy!  I feel the need to stop right here and share two films that I watched that have really changed my ideas about how and what I eat. The first is Cowspiracy and the second is What’s With Wheat. Both these films are on Netflix and are just about 90 minutes long.

I have decided to commit to the revolution of not eating processed foods and meat.  I am going to be a mad woman cooking this summer and trying to freeze everything, but I would rather that than have slave every night over a hot stove or continuing to eat the same as before. I have discovered my ability to commit to a plant-based lifestyle and I have practiced some extreme methods to do this but I am also being safe. That is the most important part of experimenting in my opinion, staying healthy enough to share what I learn. It is pretty extreme though, so I don’t recommend following in my footsteps without seeking a medical professionals guidance first.  So, what is this extreme thing? I am currently on day 21 of a 40-day water fast.  Yes. I want to finish this fast strong with you all so my goal is to get these last 19 days documented.  After the 19 days, guess what I have planned?  Weight training class. Extreme coming off of a 40 water fast, but with the timing of the classes and the holiday and the day of the fast ending, I actually have some completely down days to recover nicely and ease back into food.  I will share how I am going to do all of that and what I am learning in this class.  So, why the class? Well, for one, I LOVE education and learning new things and with all this learning about our bodies and how they work and how important what we put into them is, how can I not also learn about the mechanics of the muscles that keep me moving and burn my fat.  I really see this as a natural progression and… I do have a special surprise idea I have been kicking about that I might share…  I am still thinking about it and I really need to pray on it. So, with all this planned and happening already, I hope you will stick around and subscribe to cheer with me and share with me your experiences. Without further ado… See you in the next post.
